Welcome to the website of Church of the Palms, a part of the United Methodist Church, where we believe a life connected to God, and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningful life there is!
The Brothers! continue their study of the Gospel according to John at John 19:38 as they gather on April 24 at 8 a.m.
The Gospel of John is the latest-written of the four accounts of Jesus preserved in the New Testament.
John's account is organized into two major parts that together describe the ministry of Jesus. The first twelve chapters describe Jesus' public ministry. Beginning with his encounter with John the Baptist it ends with the visit of the Greeks who came to worship at the Feast of Passover.Read more...
The Adult Chancel Choir of Church of the Palms will present Pepper Choplin's cantata "Come, Touch the Robe" on April 27 at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m
This cantata uses the theme of Jesus' robe to highlight His many roles – of healing, of glory and authority, of humility and of victory.
Through unique music and narration this cantata tells of people who interacted with Jesus during His last days on earth.
Come experience the stories, for it is by personally encountering these touching moments that faith becomes alive.
April 27, at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
